Subject: These guys are too Hot
Let me say first of all..Bobby Jorden is one hottie..I can see some gay tones from many of there movies.The guy who played Allen in this movie was gay and killed himself on a boat because he was gay..that is very sad..But back then God forbid if you were. its a shame these guys had sad endings in there lives..not all of them. they were before my time. but love them till today.

Subject: interesting film
Of course it's a good film. A reviewer referred to homosexuality of an actor. So I focused on that issue. The research was conducted to learn more about the immune system to help determine the causes of various diseases in all humans.

Subject: Deep in the Bowery..
It seems that as of late, Ive gotten a sick addiction to the Bowery Boys. Im actually starting to look FORWARD to seeing their movies. Although the movies dont really change from movie to movie (Leo Gorcy always begins tough but softens by the end, Huntz Hall is there to screech at Gorcy, and Bobby Jordan, the best looking one (hes a real hottie actually) is always there to neutralize everything. For some dumbass reason, and maybe Im not the only one thinking this, Im starting to detect a rather subtle homoerotic undertone to their movies too. That would be a real cool subject to study.

Anyways, on to the movie! In Pride Of The Bowery, for some odd reason, Huntz Hall is missing, not for the plot of the movie, just nada, hes not in the movie at all. Its just Gorcy and Jordan, plus a bunch of kids I didnt recognize. Anyways, Gorcy is training to be a boxer. Amd the gang decide the way to make some money is to go to a work camp. (smart move). Of course Gorcy is butting heads almost immediately with authority figures in the camp, and of course the obligatory boxing match between Gorcy and one of the authority figures there (who, coincidentally, is quite good looking) doesnt solve anything. But soon, yes, Gorcys heart melts for a down-in-his-luck bunkmates tale of woe about his Mom and how she needs money for something. So Gorcy agrees to fight for cash down at the stadium, and soon theres a goyle that wanders into the picture too.

So once again, hyper male-dominated situations, curious shirtless scenss (nearly all the Bowery Boys films has them) and suggestive dialogue.

Yeah, something is not quite right in Bowreyville

Subject: A rather absorbing feature
I liked this film, once I got past the first 10 minutes or so. Some of the scenes are a bit cliche-ish and over-dramatized (in particular the boxing scenes are pretty blase' by today's standards but by WWII-era standards they were probably pretty good).
